“We know that when shopping for home, you don’t always know what you want until you see it, and finding just the right item takes more than a search – it requires ideas and inspiration,” noted Ed Macri, Chief Product and Marketing Officer, Wayfair. “With a variety of styles for every room, we’re seeing customers rely on Shop the Look for everything from refreshing an outdoor patio to planning a new nursery. Also, shoppers got into the holiday spirit as early as mid-September this year, increasingly browsing dining rooms for inspiration for Thanksgiving dinner and other holiday meals. Living room styles also spiked in popularity as shoppers envisioned how they will host family and friends throughout the season.”

Shop the Look delivers highly-relevant product recommendations among thousands of shoppable lifestyle images. Powered by deep learning, Wayfair’s visual search engine uncovers exact product matches or similar styles directly from a photo. By simply tapping a tagged item in an image, shoppers can view complete product details and immediately add products to cart or save to an Idea Board to bring their favorite looks to life in their own home. Shoppers even have the option to add multiple products from a photo to their cart or Idea Board simultaneously, making it easier than ever to make their inspiration a reality, whether by one item at a time or an entire room at once.

“We’re constantly innovating to make it as easy as possible for our customers to capture the looks they love in their own homes,” continued Macri. “Leveraging our proprietary computer vision system, we’re able to create a visual shopping experience that lets our customers discover and purchase just the right products for their homes among millions of options.”

In addition to aspirational looks from its vast designer network and proprietary photography, Shop the Look now also showcases images from Wayfair customers. For the chance to be featured in Wayfair’s Shop the Look, customers are invited to share their photos on Instagram with the tag #WayfairAtHome.
